The application for the 2023-2024 school year is NOW OPEN!
We have open seats for K through 10th grade. There is no cost to apply or attend a FLACS school. We’d love to meet you and answer any questions you may have about our schools. Fill out our interest form to receive more information.

Children born in 2017 and who will be 5 years old by December 31, 2023, are eligible to apply.

Children with a sibling already attending a FLACS school are given priority.

The FLACS schools are located in District 7 and District 9.  Children who reside in the district the school is located in will have priority. 

 As per charter school law, any student who is a resident of New York State may apply to FLACS. We cannot provide transportation to students who live outside of New York City and we strongly encourage families to ensure they easily get their children to school every day before applying.

There will be a lottery held on April 3, 2023. If your child is offered a seat, you will receive an email or text message informing you immediately.

Yes, FLACS is a uniform school. Students have to wear their uniforms every day to school.

The NYC DOE Pupil Transportation department provides school bussing or metro cards to our students.  Once you are registered at the school, the school staff will complete the transportation section and the parent and the school will be notified if the child is eligible for transportation.

We currently have a robust Alumni program dedicated to guiding our alums through college applications, internships, and vocational guidance.

Yes, you can and should apply for all three FLACS elementary schools.
